An IntensityDurationFrequency curve (IDF Curve) is a graphical representation of the probability that a given average rainfall intensity will occur. This function allows compute the coefficients of an equation that represents IDF per each return period:
I(D) = A/(B+D)^C
where I are intensities [mm/h] per each return periods, D is time duration [min]
and A, B and C are coefficients. The last are calibrated by the LevenbergMarquardt
algorithm (see nls.lm
). Moreover, regIDF
computes confidence and prediction
intervals to calibrate equiations by means of predFit
function (see investr package). Finally, this function
assesses the performance of the equations by means of four metrics: roor mean square error (rmse
),
coefficient of determination (br2) multiplied by the slope of the regression line between sim and obs (br2
),
mean square error mse
and information criteria AIC
and BIC
.

Intensity: 
a matrix with intensity values per specific time durations
(by rows) and return 
Periods: 
a numeric vector with return periods. 
Durations: 
a numeric vector specifying a time duration of the 
logaxe: 
a character to plot axis in log scale: x, y or both (xy). In other case used "". 
Plot: 
use (3) to plot IDF curves ( 
Intervals: 
a logical value specifying whether confidence and prediction intervals will be computed.

a number to determine resolution that the plot function will used to save graphs.
It can has two options: 300 and 600 ppi. See
